Pets&U News

Mikey and Marek have gone home!

Posted on 22 January 2014

Two more of our babies have found their wonderful new families during the last weekend at Pets&U pet shop. Instead of making blood money from the “kiddies” of the vile pet business, Pets&U are giving an opportunity for the dogs of our shelter to meet their adopters in the Sofia city center!

Miglena Slavova adopted our grumpy Mikey!

The little boy arrived at the shelter with two front legs badly cut and went to recovery with a lovely foster family. There, unfortunately he learnt the benefits of “being and only child”. At the previous adoption weekend Mikey had to be pulled-out from the store for being a jerk. Then, he spent 2 weeks in the company of lovely Bebolina who thought him that he is not the most important in the world. For this reason – Kremy did her best to scare off Miglena – she needed to know whom she is adopting so she can cope with him. Instead, she said: “I am prepared! I’ve been waiting for this boy two weeks already!”

So, funny Mikey was sent to his new fortune by the whole Pets&U team, as well as his foster Raya Dimitrova who came to say goodbye to him on Sunday morning. Mike will live 150 meters from the pet store, so we will be seeing him often – we wander how he will look as he grows?

Martin Radev and his girlfriend went home with our little monkey Marek. The little koala-puppy as everyone called him would constantly cling on to someone’s neck or leg with a soft, but enthusiastic wish to be hugged and stroked. He too went to Pets&U with a delay, because he was a little sick in his stomach when his turn came, so he had to “pass”.

Little Marek is already living the life of his dreams in his new Sofia apartment home. He will not be left alone for a long time, because his new owners work different shifts. This lovable, cuddley little boy will be missed and remembered in his foster home. A rarely kind, people-loving and gentle creature. Be happy, Marek, with your wonderful new family!

Can you tell who is who in these wet photos?!?

PETS&U: adoption weekend success for Martin and Echemishka

Posted on 07 January 2014

A third successful adoption weekend took place at the PETS&U store! Two lovely young dogs have found true happiness in a great family – Echemishka the little dumped puppy and Martin, a baby with a badly broken shoulder that you helped fix.

They have a home

What a stroke of amazing luck for Echemishka and Martin!!!
The two were adopted together and are already living happily ever after in their new Sofia home with Krassimir and Galina Stamboliiski’s family!!!

DSC_5387

Krassimir and Galina have always looked after two dogs in their family – they know that life is so much easier with and for a dog when it’s not left alone all day. Dogs that live in couples are never lonely and sad, they grow up to be more balanced and obedient and are overall easier to look after. We couldn’t be happier that these two babies got this chance with the Stamboliiski, both of them so friendly, social and playful!

They will be waiting for adoptions on 11+12.01.2014

Three boys will be waiting for Lady Luck to find them this weekend at PETS&U. All three of them are very, very special lads:

cedrik marek kim

  • CEDRIC – 6 m.o. boy with the sweetest of temperaments – kind, clever, and obedient. He is the friendliest of his litter and spends his time daydreaming about a family that would let him love them. He is brother to Anton&Puntchken.
  • MAREK – a 3 m.o. boy who will steal your heart in a blink! He is kind, he is gentle, he is funny, he is sweet, he is cute, he is quiet and obedient, he is a treasure!
  • KIM – a 7 m.o. breathtakingly beautiful boy! Unfortunately – he is as luck-less as he is good – all of his siblings were adopted in Holland, he is the only one who remained and feels so lonely and sad…

The boys will be expecting their new families on the 11-th and 12-th of January at Pets&U!

They donated whilst shopping

Anton and Puntchken have gone home after the adoption weekend at PETS&U!

Posted on 26 December 2013

A second successful adoption weekend took place at the PETS&U store! Two wonderful young dogs that would have otherwise sat in the cold shelter today hoping for love are already in their new homes with wonderful families in Sofia!

They have a home

Anton was adopted by Radoslav Stanchev! The good boy is now running around his own house with a yard, his drawer is full of toys and treats from PETS&U and his heart is beating to the beats of a lovely family!

And Puntchken is in her home as well – with Teodora Shalamanova and her sweet little daughter! She didn’t find her family in the weekend, but her plight crossed the path of Teodora and that was enough to bring her to the shelter a couple of days later!

We hope Anton and Puntchken bring luck to their whole litter! Amen!!!

They will be waiting for adoptions on 4+5.01.2014

This weekend there will be no adoptions at PETS&U, because everyone will be busy moving the shelter to the new Farm. But our babies will be expecting you again in the store on the 4-th and 5-th of January 2014! The first heroes of 2014 will be:

  • Mikey, the puppy with the cut-up front paws
  • Martin, the puppy who got a surgery from you for his protruding elbow
  • And Miss.Echemishka, a little girl dumped like trash in the street who was raised in our foster care

The first to be adopted through Pets&U!

Posted on 20 December 2013

Last weekend at Pets&U was something amazing! Meeting so many awesome people who came to meet the dogs and buy calendars and promotional food was so motivating and reassuring! We loaded up on good emotions to last all the way until the next weekend!

DSC_1661

Two lovely ladies have went home! The first one was Lisa – a soft, kind, sweet little girl that we found dumped along with her brother and sister 3 months ago. Margarita and Vladislav Marinovi came only to see the doggies – of kindness and curiosity. But, when they saw the little sweetie they simply forgot to leave. Later on in the day they came back again, but this time with one of their sons and their 6-year old lady beagle and it was clear – Lisa is their dog!

DSC_1890 DSC_1965

So, Lisa is now with her loving new family. She will not be alone during the days, because the boys in the family go to school one in the morning and one in the afternoon, so there is always someone at home. Congratulations! We are so pleased for the little bear!

Kally the pug had many candidates – just as expected. There were a few families that were suitable for her, so she made the choice herself – Kally chose Nikoleta and Stanimir Stavrevi from Sofia.

DSC_1857 DSC_1905

 

They turned out to be very prepared for a dog of this breed, so she was lucky in her choice! Kally will be loved and cared for as a the little princess she is, what a lucky little lady!

HUGE THANKS to the amazing team at Pets&U! They are really remarkable people, we are happy and lucky to have the opportunity of working with them. Many hugs to the groomer Cvety who washed and polished our sweethearts before they went home – we had never rehomed dogs smelling so good before!

DSC_1772 DSC_1865 DSC_1955

This weekend at Pets&U there will be two doggies waiting for love – Anton and Punktchen  – both friendly, sunny, clever creatures who do not sleep at night, but dream and pray for Lady Luck to look their way and take them home this Christmas:

Pets&U are continuing their support for the animals in trouble – until the end of December the shop will donate 10% of all purchased Royal Canin foods and 15% of the adult Brit foods! Do go there if you need to stock up – they have a parking space available and if you get your food there you will not only be feeding your dog, but ours as well! Many hugs and greetings to those who have already bought the homeless-animal-support brands at Pets&U!

Adoption Weekend and Support at Pets&U!

Posted on 19 December 2013

We are very excited to announce that Sofia’s largest pet store Pets&U has begun a campaign to help the homeless animals in this city!

Да-помогнем-заедно kucheshkiyat-mol-pets-u-otvori-vrati-v-sofiya

The wonderful team behind the store has developed a truly effective fundraising scheme to aid the work of Animal Rescue Sofia and 4 Paws!

During the whole of December brands Brit and Royal Canin will be sold with a 15 and 10% donation benefiting one of the two organizations (the buyer makes the decision)!

Besides this serious financial support, an amazing event is about to take place for the first time in Bulgaria:

Instead of piling up blood money from the “children” of the dirty animal-trade Pets&U are giving a chance to the orphans of our shelter – helping them meet their new people in the Sofia city center!

Each weekend puppies from our shelter will be waiting for you at Pets&U! We start this week December 14+15!

Donate whilst feeding your best friend quality food!

During the whole of December you can purchase dog food and thus help our work financially!

When purchasing foods of the brand Brit *adult, 10-25kg* you donate:

  • 15 BGN of the 20 kilo bags (cost: 60 BGN)!
  • 5 BGN of the 3 kilo bags (cost: 15 BGN)!
  • 2 BGN of the 1 kilo bags (cost: 6,50 BGN)!

When purchasing foods of the brand Royal Canin *all kinds and packages* you donate:

  • 10% of the cost of your purchase!!!

The initiative will continue on in 2014 with different brands showing their support every month!
By buying these foods you are feeding both your and a homeless dog at the same time!

10 of the largest bags of “our” Brit were purchased at Pets&U by a generous lady (who preferred to remain anonymous) last weekend! But that is not all – she donated all 10 bags for the hungry throats at the shelter!!  We are truly grateful to everyone who is helping us out by shopping at Pets&U!!!

Adoption weekends at Pets&U!

We all know what a horrible, bloody business hides behind the sweet faces of the puppies and kittens that look at us from the pet-shop windows. The horrible conditions in which the dogs and cats for trade are bred and raised are the reason we never work with, nor shop from live-animal salespeople. We greatly respect the decision of Pets&U to never sell live kittens and puppies, no matter how luring they are for the customers.

What is more: Pets&U is giving a chance for the unwanted babies of the shelter to reach their families more easily! By smiling at the passers-by from the window of their store by Hemus hotel!

You are welcome to meet angels from our shelter at Pets&U this very weekend!
This is how things will go:

Our dogs will await their candidates at Pets&U on Saturday. There will be a shelter representative present to carry on the interviews and fill out some forms. At the end of the day or the next morning the approved candidates will receive a call from us to come adopt their new pal and fill-out a contract. The third obligatory meeting between us and the adopters will take place at their home or in the shelter (it’s an open choice).

Lisa and Kally were the first lucky ladies to go home thanks to the great initiative by the awesome people at Pets&U!

(We are far behind on the happy stories of the dogs rehomed, but we hope to get your understanding considering all that is happening these days – we promise to make it up to you!)

The angels this weekend – 21-22.12.2013

Punktchen and Anton came to us along with 5 of their brothers and sisters. Kind people had taken care that they arrive at the shelter vaccinated and safe from illness, but they had unfortunately forgotten one thing just as important – to socialize them. The whole litter was terrified of people and most definitely didn’t want to have anything to do with us.

We put them in the first compartment of our Babytory and began working with them – every visitor at the shelter was forced to firs feed the babies snacks before any tasks were done. Vessy spent long, long days of talking, petting, hugging, feeding and all in all convincing this dear family that we come in peace and are more specifically their best friends. And since Vessy can be rather convincing the little puppies only put up a fight for a couple of months and then gave in to her charms.

Now the whole group would jump up as a string when a person is in sight! True – they expect every hand that is reaching out should be filled with treats, but what an enthusiasm, what a hope for the human kind! Balance has been completely restored in their hearts and our little heroes are no longer the poor shivering mice they were once, they are happy, smiling youngsters that would like nothing more than to go home.

Punktchen and Anton were born in May – they are about 6-7 months old. Both are completely healthy and have their vaccines, passports and neuterings done. They are really sunny creatures who will grow strong and happy in their new homes! The kids are waiting for you this weekend at Pets&U!
